James Austin Johnson Breaks Down the Specifics of His Trump Impression and Having a “Yuge” SNL Debut

Just like in his SNL debut, James Austin Johnson is the very first of the new cast members on this 47th season of Saturday Night Live to make a late night appearance. Johnson, unlike almost any other cast member in the history of the show, appeared as the core character in this season opening cold open sketch as President Biden.

Since then, JAJ has appeared in several sketches throughout this season almost as if he was a full cast member.

Johnson sat down with Seth Meyers on Late Night to share his whirlwind life changing move to NYC after finding out he got SNL and gets into the nitty gritty with how he perfected his very specific, very brilliant Trump impression.

Please enjoy his interview here and here, which we’re sure will be the first of many late night appearances.
